One special part of living with Arunachala is all the sadhus who are attracted to this holy hill.
Here is a sadhu receiving food.
We have enjoyed their presence here from the first time we visited Tiruvannamalai, and I have written a number of posts about them. This page gives you an easy way to view these posts.
Sadhus on the road sometimes seem like they are just waiting for food, for alms, for the day to pass. I have walked many times in the forests that surround Arunachala, and often have seen these same sadhus meditating. This section shows articles that feature local sadhus.
Sadhu Feeding (Annandanam)
We have been involved with many sadhu feedings over the years. Articles have been written about a few of these, and are shown here.
Below, Carol giving food at our first ever sadhu feeding, done for her birthday in 2008.
Old and Disabled Sadhus
Many sadhus are old, some very old and needing care. Some are blind or otherwise disabled. Some people make efforts to help. These posts shows some of this.
